I had to re-logon to my mobile phone, but not my web browser. It seems this was due to a glitch at Google, but doesn’t remove my suspicion when I see this message come up in the future. So I did check account activity at these links:

Hopefully by now mkchromecast [WayBack] works on more Linux versions (and maybe even Mac OS X is better supported [WayBack]), but back then it was only available for Ubuntu 16.10 and up:
Do you want to stream the audio from Rhythmbox, VLC or another Linux app to your TV through Chromecast? Well, we’ve found a nifty little Linux tool that lets you do just that.

I need to check these against a Chromecast v2 as the below URLs are from a v1 device:
More is possible by using cURL: Chromecast Hacking Has Begun | fiquett.com
sleep 8h; while true; do
curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://192.168.71.113:8008/apps/YouTube -X POST -d 'v=somevideo';

Somehow I didn’t get Google Opinion Rewards surveys for more than half a year. As per below post, I’ve cleared the app data a week ago.
This is a reminder to myself to check if I got any surveys since…
(Yes, I’ve location on, battery saving off and the app runs).

If shared Google Calendars do not show on your iPad, iPod, iPhone or Mac, then go to https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect (sometimes called https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect) and set a tick mark in front of each calendar you want to appear there. Finally, refresh the calendar list on your iOS device and you are set.
